The new WWE Battlegrounds mobile game is now available to download from your preferred app store, but there already appears to be quite a glaring issue with it.
newLEGACYinc, one of the world’s top WWE game streamers, has spotted a very familiar sketch within the gameplay, and it appears to be of former Impact Champion Tessa Blanchard.
When I say appears to be, it definitely is that, because we all know the picture I’m talking about, as shown in the below tweet.

Unless WWE has somehow managed to get permission from Impact Wrestling to use the image, which would be very odd, the company who made the game might be in a bit of trouble.
In fact, Basil Mahmud, the photographer who took the above photo of Tessa, has reached out to WWE Games in an attempt to find out why they’ve used his image without asking his permission.

We’ll have to see how this one pans out, but it appears the photographer may be able to challenge WWE legally for using his photograph, and therefore his property, without permission.
